This product now does not contain any daisy in this one new batch I have ready, and no nettle or herb robert, but instead has an abundance of wild sow thistle, some wild mullein (amazing decongestor for lungs and endocrine glands and GI tract soother), some marigold flowers which are great for eyesight and blood cleansing, and a little bit of organic parsley as the only non wild ingredient, and lots of chickweed which is an amazing herb used for many many things!!!
Specially wildcrafted by myself, Owen, in the clean wildnerness and countryside of rural Ireland. This is a hardcore nutritional supplement much stronger, more medicinal and more nutritious than almost all other green superfood blends on the market. Note: sorry, but it tastes BITTER which helps stimulate the vagus gland to promote salivation, bile flow, pancreatic juices and stomach acid and helps the vital organ of the LIVE-r.
Wild greens are like wild cats like TIGERS and LIONS compared to the whimpy home grown, pampered and coddled plants of organic and non organic harvesting. They are in a battle of survival of the fittest daily, and must fight for their survival. Resultingly, their roots grow strong and deep, they have powerful vitality and tremendous nutritional qualities, as well as typically also growing in untamed, nutrient and mineral rich soil which most commercially food is completely lacking in. Take as much of this as you want daily, but I suggest you start off with a low dosage, and get used to it. Detoxification may make you feel off at the beginning when not used to such strong vital food!
Any wildcrafted supergreen you take is a SUPERFOOD and nutritional powerhouse. I've heard of raw foodists of 10 years saying they NEVER felt better than while sustaining themselves on as many wild foraged foods as possible. I've heard the native American Indians ate a variety of possibly 2000-2500 diferent plants, giving a MASSIVE array and variation of nutrients, whereas the modern man/woman now mostly subsides and barely "survives" (not thrives!!!) on 35 or so different plants or less, mostly things made from very commercialized hybrodized wheat, corn, white potatoes and a few other things, deeply lacking in rare minerals, nutrients and trace minerals. Any wild food or leaf, root or stem or flower has an abundance of nutrients, especially the leaves are high in rare minerals that we are most depleted in from our modern diets!!!

HERB ROBERT (One of my TOP favorite herbs!!! You'll see why below)
Herb robert is a supreme, therapeutic herb. Although, very little information is available, on the constituents, this herbs action is one of the most outstanding herbs that we can use regularly, as an enhancer of the immune system. Research has revealed herb robert is a source of germanium, a valuable element to the body, as it has the ability to make oxygen available to the cells. More oxygen, at cell level, means the body has the opportunity to fight disease by its own powers, and healing can take place quickly. Lack of oxygen, available to the cells, can be caused by free radicals and a toxic state around the cells: meaning the cells cannot get the required oxygen, or the nutrients, to regenerate. The area becomes anaerobic, the beginning of pain, disease, wayward cells and cancer. Dr. Otto Warburg, twice Nobel Prize winner, said in 1966, "The prime cause of cancer is lack of oxygenation of the cells". He discovered that riotous, wayward cancer cells could not exist in the presence of abundant oxygen, but only in and anaerobic state. Because oxygen plays such an important role in cell health and immune function, using herb robert regularly, can be something really practical we can do, for overall wellbeing. Germanium not only works as an oxygen carrier and catalyst, but also stimulates electrical impulses, at a cellular level, which has a beneficial ripple effect, throughout the whole body. Germaniums remarkable effects on the immune system have been documented in medical journals: as an energy giver, immune builder, and as a powerful therapeutic and preventative, as a vigorous adaptogen, acting to alleviate minor or major health imbalances. Germanium provides an antibiotic, antiviral, antioxidant arsenal; and, I believe this is what we experience, when we make herb robert part of our daily lives.
Many years ago, someone shared with me an article on herb robert that has given many people new hope from serious conditions of the body. The article was written by V. Ferrandiz N.D. Spain, published in 1976 as a news item, in Herald of Health, entitled: Geranium Robertianum, ancient herb used in the treatment for defeating cancer. The article gave details of how to use the herb, and several case histories. The following three paragraphs are from the article: In this article, I will report on the healings accomplished with a humble herb, St. Roberts Wort or Geranium Robertainum. This healing is not a modern invention, within the natural healing arts. The great botanist and teacher, Dioscorides, had already described it. Probably, someone in Portugal had read about his description of the remedial action of Robert Wort against cancer, and knowing about some cases of this terrible disease, started to use this herb or recommend it to the patients relatives. And so its healing virtues soon spread over the country, which attracted the attention of the media, who began to investigate and collect information from several sources.
In February 1953, the Natura magazine printed a letter by P. Friere, an outstanding Portuguese Journalist, stating, "My colleague, Mr. Nunes de Carcalho, reports about his motherin- law, aged 83 years. She had been afflicted with bowel cancer, confirmed by two doctors and x-rays. They advised that not one but two surgical interventions were deemed extremely essential, but, despite this, the poor old lady possibly would not stand the operation, at her age. Someone told Mr. De Carcalho about a person who knew about a prescription with which she used to cure this disease. The woman prescribed a mixture of powdered leaves of St. Roberts Wort and fresh raw egg yolk. The patient took this and was healed. The plant has astringent, homeostatic and antibiotic actions. Shortly after, the wife of the journalist fell ill, and the same doctor who advised the two operations for the old lady, attended her. It was at this time that the doctor discovered that the woman, whom he thought would have been dead, was healed. Then, more information was found about others who had been healed; some, of cancer of the bowel; others, of lung cancer; of breast cancer; and cancer of the uterus. Especially mentioned, was the case of a lady afflicted with intestinal cancer as diagnosed by xrays and doctors; she was in her last stage of endurance, as the wound was deep and large. Treated with this remedy, Herb Robertianum, in a few weeks and with some enemas, a total purification was accomplished. To this, the reporter added… it is usual for doctors to doubt their own diagnosis, rather than accept that cancer has been cured by a humble herb.
Another woman healed with this herb, was Anna Cruz Caridade, who had inoperable lung cancer, with branches leading to the neck and arms. She heard about the healing virtues of St. Roberts Wort and tried it. Very soon, an improvement ensued and, after a time, was completely healed. Some time later, lumps appeared in her breasts, rib and shoulder and her doctor advised a series of radiotherapy treatments. But she remembered what had happened with the lung cancer, and again, tried the same herbal treatment. Gradually, the nodes started to recede and diminish in size, until they were completely gone.
Now, over 25 years since the man shared the article with me, I know of many people who have benefited with this extraordinary herb, having listened, over the years, to their various problems and reports. People ring and say specialists are rather mystified that they can no longer find any trace of cancer on x-rays or tests. Did their doctor make a wrong diagnosis? I prefer to acknowledge that herbs have been given to us for our health, and healing.
Andrew called to tell me he had been diagnosed with advanced bowel cancer; and his doctor had told him to go away and die. He had been told about herb robert, and started taking the herb, daily. His cancer is now in remission.
Recently, Mary called from North Queensland, to tell me she was enjoying a holiday on the Sunshine Coast, and a new lease of life. Her life had been marred by lung cancer, but now was free of any sign of it, which Mary believes was due, entirely, to taking herb robert daily, for 11 months, and she will continue to take it.
Robyn wrote to me from interstate, saying that drinking the herb had caused bladder cancer to disappear, not even leaving a scar.
Most people, who start on herb robert, immediately experience relief from pain. Some see improvement in conditions very quickly, while others may only get results after many months, of using the herb.

Its white “milk” can be used to get rid of warts (like other milky plants).
WILD PEA GREENS
I've found it difficult to find the exact nutritional or medicinal properties of this wild green, but sufficed it so say, it's another wild green superfood with outstanding benefits. Every wild plant is far more nutritional and packed with medicinal compounds than it's domesticated relative. Here are some of the benefits attributed to commercial peagreens:
Pea shoots are a great source of three chemoprotective agents: folate, antioxidants and carotene. Folate helps produce and maintain cells and protects against DNA damage.
Antioxidants help the body fight free radical damage, commonly associated with high cancer risk. Carotenes help inhibit antioxidant activity and are commonly associated with increased cancer prevention.
High In Antioxidants
One cup of pea shoots provides about 35% the daily value of vitamin C and 15% the DV of vitamin A. In comparison, this is seven times as much vitamin C as blueberries and four times as much vitamin A as tomatoes. They are also an excellent source of vitamin K, providing 66% the DV from a one cup serving.
Pea shoots are dense with the antioxidants and phytonutrients needed to support the bodys complex inflammation system.
While many studies point to the many benefits green peas can have for people suffering from diabetes, there is less research to conclude that pea shoots provide as much protection. However, pea shoots contain many of the nutrients that can help keep blood sugar levels low as well as great antioxidant support, which is considered essential in supporting people with type two diabetes and lowering the risk of developing diabetes.
Though large-scale research on the relationship between pea shoots and cardiovascular health remains unavailable, the support these leaf greens provide the inflammation system and immune system of the body, as well as the high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients they offer indicate that pea shoots may lend a wide range of cardiovascular benefits. Inflammation and antioxidants alone help protect against heart disease.
Pea shoots have an outstanding nutrient to calorie ratio and offer a good amount of dietary fiber, which helps control body weight and regulate the metabolism. Though they may not directly induce weight loss, they remain a great addition to an effective weight loss program.
Daisy Leaves and Flowers
Daisies contain essential oil, tannins, mucus substances, flavonoids, bitter substances, organic acids, resins and inulin. The active ingredients are found in all parts of the plant.
Daisy has anti-inflammatory and mild astringent properties and has been used internally, in tea form, as herbal remedy for the common cold, bronchitis and other inflammation of the upper respiratory tract.
The herb may be used for loss of appetite as it has stimulating effect on the digestion system and it has been used as a treatment for many ailments of the digestive tract, such as gastritis, diarrhea, liver and gallbladder complaints and mild constipation.
Daisies have been used traditionally for painful menstruation, cystitis and other inflammations of the urinary tract. Additionally, it may have its uses as a natural treatment for atopic dermatitis, gout and chronic rheumatic conditions.
The plant is known for its healing properties and can be used topically on small wounds, sores and scratches to speed up the healing process. In addition it has been used externally for dermatitis, rash, eczema, bruises and boils.
Tincture made from the herb can be used for acne, and as mouth wash or a gargle may be used as a remedy for mouth inflammation and sore throat. Also, chewing on the fresh leaves might be helpful as a relief for mouth ulcers.
In folk medicine, it was often recommended to eat the fresh leaves to stimulate the nutrition uptake, due to the bitter substances found in the herb.
The fresh leaves, flowers, buds and petals have a pleasant taste and can be used in salads or added to soups. Furthermore, the flower heads can be used in vinegar and as a substitute for capers.
A relative of watercress, it's hard to find the benefits of some rare wild greens, but I'm guessing it's pretty much as god if not a lot better and more powerful than watercress whose benfits are as follows:
Strong superfood and medicine used for tuberculosis, chest, lung, kidney, gland, lymph and chronic skin issues. For canker sores, mouth blisters, acne, ringworm, rashes, skin infections, hot flashes, headaches, nervousness, eczema, dermatitis, excellent for clearing fluids in body tissue like GOUT, clearing mucus and lung congestion, bronchitis, coughs, asthma, high blood pressure, hemorrhoids, rheumatism, chest congestion, ringworm, fungus, helps break up kidney and bladder stones, good for liver and kidney problems. Helps protect against heart disease and eye diseases like cataracts. Immune stimulant, antioxidant, increases energy, boosts metabolism, enhances oxygen utilization, cleanses blood and colon, diuretic, mild laxative, cancer prevention. Watercress is packed with 15 essential vitamins and minerals; A, B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, biotin, C, D, E, very high in sulfur, calcium, iodine, iron, magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, sodium, trace elements, vanadium, zinc, bioflavonoids. Weight for weight, it contains more vitamin C than oranges, more calcium than milk, more iron than spinach, more folic acid than bananas. The strong taste is from high sulfur content (beautifies skin and complexion), and a substance called phenylethyl isothiocyanate (PEITC), which is able to block the function of a protein called Hypoxia Inducible Factor (HIF), which is needed for cancer to grow. Molecular biologists at Purdue University in Indiana discovered that watercress could actually correct its genetic code if inheriting from flawed parents, to grow normally again like its grandparents. The results, described by researchers as “spectacular,” defy the scientific law of inheritance and present the notion that the plant, unlike any other species, can effectively heal itself and maintain its pure ancestral blueprint
